Catalyst win GivX community value award

Catalyst’s corporate responsibility efforts have been recognised at the 2018 GivX Summit, coming 10th in their category

Catalyst were announced as 10th in GivX SME 10 category, with a score per employee of 317 and an overall total of 28,500. GivX is a simple, standardised way for companies to place a value on their giving and compare their performance with other organisations. A GivX point is equivalent to £1 and valued in-line with the ‘community value’ approach that focuses on the replacement cost of gifts and support for charities.

Representing Catalyst’s CSR team at the Summit was Louise Gruppetta who commented:

 “We’re so pleased to have come 10th in this year’s GivX SME 10 category and delighted that our work and commitment to corporate responsibility has been recognised. This reward means a lot to us and is a benchmark we can use to strive to improve on in the coming year.”

Speaking on behalf of Benefacto and GivX, Ben Darlington said:

“We are delighted with the huge increase in participation in GivX this year. More than three times as many companies have taken part and this allows us to provide them with an unprecedented level of insight into what good community investment practice looks like. It’s also meant that competition has really stiffened, so a huge congratulations to all our award winners. We believe that by improving the quality of the management information available to CR practitioners, GivX will allow companies to build on both the quality and scale of their community investment.

Our thanks go out to everyone who took part this year”
